Following on from the success of D.I.Y (Do.It.Yourself), a publication about DIY theatre and performance (2014), Robert Daniels has brought together another group of artists to further explore this topic.

DIY TOO is a new book about “do it yourself” performance, with contributions made by over 30 arts practitioners and collectives.

It’s a sequel of sorts, or rather; a continuation, to “DIY”, and is the second in a book series that platforms a growing community of voices in theatre, art, dance and performance making.

Its aim is to articulate and contextualise an ethos and practice within contemporary art called “DIY” theatre and performance.

For this edition, LOW PROFILE have written a beginners guide to making a DIY artist led project with the aim of sharing some useful things that we have learned about running artist led projects, to better equip others who feel like they have the energy and time to roll up their sleeves and get DIY’ing.
